Holly and I return for the next chapter of our series discussing “Hope and Help For Your Nerves” by Dr. Claire Weekes. In this episode we discuss chapter 6, which is probably the lynchpin around which Dr. Weekes built her work. Learning to TRULY accept your anxiety symptoms and to TRULY believe that they are not dangerous will allow you to relax into your symptoms rather than fighting against them. Learning to relax, float, and soften in the face of the onslaught is the path to long term improvement. When you no longer fear your anxiety symptoms, they will begin to fade and you will begin to get your life back.

Lets take on our first 30 day exposure challenge. For the next 30 days, start by making a short list of activities you find challenging from an anxiety standpoint. Then, start working on those items. Feel free to talk about your progress or post pics/videos in the Facebook group. We’re all there to encourage each other and cheer each other on!

Billy and I talk about the nuts and bolts of breaking down your challenge tasks into very small bits and working on each bit one by one.

“Get busy living, or get busy dying.”

At some point in the journey to overcome anxiety issues, concepts and techniques and tips and tricks fall by the wayside and it becomes a matter of desire and drive and courage and just wanting to improve your life. You can read and listen and learn and discuss, but at some point you have to find that spark deep in your gut and get moving. In this episode Billy and I talk about finding your spark and using it to launch you forward.

I’ve been asked many times over the years how bad my anxiety used to be. Yes, it was probably as bad as yours. In this episode of our Anxiety 101 series, I’ll tell you all about it. Everything I’ve been through. The symptoms I’ve dealt with. The issues I’ve had to resolve.

The good news is that if I can do it, you can do it!

What triggers your anxiety?  Billy and I discuss anxiety triggers, how you can identify your triggers, and what you can do about them.  As usual, we answer listener/viewer questions near the end of the episode.

Apologies for the audio issues on my end of the feed.  New camera and mic setup had some issues that needed to be sorted out.

Following up on our initial talk about the basics of exposure therapy, Billy and talk about how repetition and practice are so important.  We discuss how practicing the small things and continually expanding your scope will make it easy to tackle larger tasks that are harder to practice (i.e. flying, or visiting the dentist).  Finally, we take some comments and questions on previous episodes.

Billy and I were both a bit under the weather for this episode, so we thought a discussion of health anxiety and how illness impacts your anxiety was in order. We discuss health anxiety in general, our reactions when feeling ill, and how dealing with health anxiety is more about cognitive work than physical exposure.

A panic attack isn’t always a bad thing. In fact, when you’re doing exposure work and trying to learn how not to be afraid of panic and anxiety, having a panic attack is virtually a requirement at some point. Only be experiencing panic without bracing, fighting, avoiding or fleeing can we truly learn that while our fear is real, the danger is not. This is the key to success, so welcome your panic and embrace panic attacks as chances to practice not being afraid!
